Agfa Healthcare's CR 12-X

September 20, 2013 – Agfa HealthCare announced the North American launch of the CR 12-X, a table-top computed radiography (CR) digitizer which combines affordability with high image quality. This solution is fitting for general radiography, orthopaedic, and chiropractic practices, including those needing Full Leg/Full Spine application. 
 
Customer-Chosen Workflow
 
The compact, table-top CR 12-X system has a single slot for 14x17 inch (35 x 43 cm) cassettes. It can be placed at most locations, and is suited for mobile applications. With the CR 12-X, the user can choose to adjust speed and resolution depending on the needs of the exam. Technologists can overwrite the default settings for each exam, depending on the specific speed/quality priorities, study by study.
 
Image Quality and Versatility
 
The digitizer bridges the gap of multiple size cassettes and works in conjunction with Agfa HealthCare’s NX workstation for an efficient and customizable imaging workflow. With auto-processing capabilities in the NX software, the image identification and quality control tool, images are automatically cropped if a smaller image is captured using a larger cassette. This removes additional steps for the technologist to prepare images for the radiologist.
 
Agfa HealthCare's gold-standard Musica software is included in the implementation of CR 12-X, which automatically handles all image processing, independently of body part and dose, optimizing the final image quality without the need for any human intervention or special training.
 
The CR 12-X is fully DICOM-compliant to easily integrate with other solution elements.
